    30 Day Project: Revisited.A New Release!
    Yeah, it's a project I'm working on to familiarise myself with ASM code =P
    There will be 2 versions, Non-Modified Level Art, and new Art.
    Features include:

    Dodgy Spindash =P,
    Zone ranging from day to night,
    New GFX (HUD etc. coming soon),
    New Level art (in progress),
    Multiple Characters
    Alternate Music for Each Act.
    Act 1 keeps the same pallete and music


    Here are some screenshots with original level art:

    Certainly a great start! New level art is always nice.

    Really. For me, the topic started getting interesting when I saw the new art.



    Not that your palettes weren't good, but I've been seeing palette hacks using the same art since forever...

    That art for the GHZ(second new art pic) is strangely reminiscent to StephenUK's old art - just less detailed and brighter.

    Do you guys realize that it's just the art for Aqua Lake zone from Sonic 2 (game gear)?

    Nice day-cycle there - keep up the good work! :rolleyes:

    how about [if it's possible] have stars and the moon out at night-time?

    Well, that's what I was hoping =P
    I drawn it Pixel by Pixel though, long process, it's not going to be an exact replica though.

    .. for some reason, I really really like your GHZ night palette. It reminds me of one of the palettes from Sonic 2 SMS/GG's ending. You must try to fix the rotating palettes, though.

    I like it, as I have always liked Aqua Lake zone.

    New palettes on standard art is uninteresting these days and done since forever as IceKnight mentioned.
    However, your new art is stunning.

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    New palettes are kinda boring since they're so overdone, but these are very nice palettes nonetheless. Especially your GHZ night palette.

    Okay Guys, I Got some new Screens for you!

    These screen shots are early in game concepts of a background.
    Note that it is a work in progress, constructive Critisism will be helpful.

    that's the new Background in Work!

    And a Prediction?

    ======================

    After some feedback on Sonic Retro, I'm in progress of better looking mountains. Mountains are an area I'm not too good at, but I need to learn =P

    Here is a Preview (from SonED2):

    EDIT: No HTML =\
     
  14. The volcano/mountains looks really cool, although it doesn't match the tree art below it. Still pretty cool, and a hell of a lot better than what I can do. Just a suggestion, but an animated lava flow similar to Lava Reef would look nice, especially on act 3. Very cool, keep up the good work.

    Well...you have a somewhat good shading technique, but mountains aren't just straight lines like that, try making them more jagid.

    Hez: Exactly what I was thinking. I was just being lazy to see if I like it =P
    Flame: I know the trees don't go, they're just there until I can figure out what to replace them with, until I can remove the dynamic background scrolling effect on them.
    If anyone can give any tips on that help will be greatly appreciated.

    If you look at it, it's a bit strange to have water fountains in the foreground, and then a volcano on fire in the background. Don't you think waterfalls on the mountain would fit better?

    Looking nice so far, but, yeah. Volcanoes kinda contrast with water fountains.

    The foreground trees seem a bit out of place, considering almost everything else has been replaced. This is really looking great, though.

    MetalMan88: Good Point, Noted.

    For everyone else, I have been working on a new level at the same time as GHZ, so that I don't get bored.
    Here are some Screens, Enjoy:
